Nathan Mackenzie

Board Member

Nathan joined the Museum of Food and Culture Board in March 2022. Nathan is fascinated by the immense potential of the Museum of Food and Culture to connect people through food and to inspire thoughtful, challenging, and inspiring dialogue and insight about the many ways food intersects our personal and collective lives. 

Currently Nathan serves as the Charitable Giving Officer at 9Health:365, a nonprofit providing comprehensive preventative health services across Colorado. Most recently, he served as Interim Executive Director and Director of Development at The GrowHaus, which cultivates community-driven food justice through food access and education in north Denver. Prior to The GrowHaus, he worked at El Pomar Foundation in Colorado Springs, engaging with communities across Colorado while participating in a two-year leadership and nonprofit management program. His work with nonprofits began in Nairobi, Kenya, where he lived and worked for Shining Hope for Communities, which addresses gender inequality and extreme poverty in urban slums. He graduated from Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT. 

Nathan enjoys reading, cooking, playing chess, and getting his hands dirty with the local cut flower farm (Lily’s Flower Farm) and veggie garden he runs with his wife.
